In as much as anyone has a beat at WWR, I have the crowd funded beat. My introduction to the site came via a Kiackstarter project, I nurtured my relationship with Patrick by feeding more and more Kickstarter reviews, and I have purchased a couple of Kickstarter watches. Project creators are reaching out to us in the hopes of highlighting their projects, and I want to encourage that. But the truth is, we can’t cover them all. So from time to time, I will put together a Crowd Funded Compilation post of watches that otherwise have not had stand alone reviews. Many of these watches are a fair bit away from their funding threshold, so a pledge may end up getting canceled if the watch does not make it.
There are a couple of companies producing dive watches with cushion cases, and I have seen quite a few bronze divers of late, but there are not a lot of bronze divers with a cushion case. Well the Benarus Bronze Moray 42 is here to help fill that niche. Offered in two dial colors with two design options each, this limited production watch is a statement on your wrist.
I’ve been on a mission lately to get myself a nice Omega Speedmaster Mark II, the remake of a classic chorno that, in its original incarnation, has haunted me for…
I am not a huge fan of smartwatches, but of the ones you can actually buy today, the Moto 360 seems to be the one with the best looks, especially if you want a smart watch that looks like a watch. But the folks at Steel Connect have come up with an enhancement, the SteelConnect M, an adapter that will let you use any 22mm strap.
I will admit, I am a sucker for a visually interesting watch. If you start exposing the more compelling (and kinetic) portions of the movement, then all the better. While I have only had one tourbillon cross my desk, I have to admit that it was a treat to watch in action. So, when I caught wind of the Antoine Preziuso 3volution Tourbillon, I definitely sat up and took notice.
We like to feature Touch of Modern sales here on WWR, for good reasons. They often have interesting timepieces at pretty decent discounts. The site does require you to sign up in order to buy, so if you have not done so already, you can join here. Right now on the site, they are featuring two interesting watch sales, one on a range of divers from Deep Blue, and the other on high end automatics from Azimuth.
Were you aware that we run contests here at WWR? And we actually give away watches? Well, we love to hear back from our winners, and Seth, the winner of the James McCabe Lurgan was nice enough to shoot us a note saying that the watch is beautiful, and even better, he sent over a wrist shot.
As the old saying goes “there is more than one way to skin a cat.” With watches there is more than one way to display the time. There is, of course, the circular display, with lots of variations, and then there are text displays, be they digital or printed, like the Devon Tread. Division Furtive Type 50 watch is not content with these options, and uses a linear display, two rows of LEDs for time, date, moon phase and chronograph functions.
